Catherine Rutherford, a native Winnipegger began dancing at the age of five and entered the RWB School Professional Division at age 13. She graduated in 2009 and this year joins The Company as an apprentice! We asked Catherine to tell us a bit about her first few weeks and how she feels about being a part of The Company.
I am thrilled to be joining the Royal Winnipeg Ballet for its 2011- 2012 season. This past month and a half has been a whirlwind of excitement for me. I have already learned and worked on four ballets that we will be performing throughout the season including Svengali, which will be premiering this fall. It has been amazing watching a ballet being created right before your eyes and I can’t believe I am a part of it. I’ve also been so happy being welcomed by everyone into this company. We really are a great big family here and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of it.
